breakdown of property rates

February 16th, 2010 at 07:14 pm

Paid our 6-monthly property rates today. We got a $61.50 discount for paying it before the 19th.

Would you like to know what we get for our property rates? (I mean other than being safe in the knowledge that our council members just approved themselves a 3.2% payrise...)

Water Consumption Charge: $59.40
Water Base Charge: $105.50
Sewerage Base Charge: $258.00
Waste Bin: $93.50
Environmental Levy: $30.00
Public Transport Levy: $10.00
State Fire Levy: $75.60
General Property Rate: $521.50

Total: $1153.50
Less Discount: -$61.50
Total: $1092.00

Oh! The joys of being a homeowner!

    wow... we pay just a bit more than that but it is for the whole year worth. We pay 4 times a year, we don't get any discount.

    well of course they have to have a raise. They have to make tough decisions like where to spend the environmental levy. what kind of selfish monster are you? j/k
